Peony is one of the names I fell in love with at first sight. I think it sounds bright, dainty, and feminine. My cousin's grandmother has peonies in her garden, which is a sweet personal connection for me. I would love to use it as a first but I'm a little hesitant because of potential teasing, maybe as a middle!

My grandma use to have a peonies in her yard. When I was little I always thought it was a silly name for a flower because it sounded kinda like "pee on me". Needless to say I would not give a child the burden of this name.

Beatrice Peony is a beautiful combination <3

Floris Says:


So cute... But it does sound slightly unfortunate. Maybe Peonia? Pronounced the Italian way (so without the pee sound?)

I actually know a little girl named Peony. She pronounces it Pee-OWN-ee. I kind of laughed when I first heard it. This is not an easy name to have.
